Mercury Rev – “Opus 40”

The freaky tale of a space alien’s love for an Earth girl, shot like a Flash Gordon serial. It’s Jonathan Donahue’s extraterrestrial fingernails that really drive this one home.

“Opus 40” comes from Mercury Rev’s Deserter’s Songs (1998), an album that was supposed to be the band’s last (until it won Album of the Year accolades across the globe).
